Shih Tzu trims are quite similar to Maltese trims. Kennel cuts are 1/2″ or shorter, their ears are left long, and trimmed to give them a “puppy face”. Teddy bears are a 1/2″ or longer (but never longer than 2″), and the face is left longer. A breed trim is left long, but a skirt is cut out so their hair doesn’t drag on the floor. Finally, the show trim is all the way to the floor (and beyond).
